The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Century: 2009. I liked the earlier ones better. What can I say?
Then, there was a more dry piece of work, Osprey Weapon #13: The M1 Carbine, a weapon from WWII primarily, though it was used up into the Vietnam War. What brightened this book were the anecdotes that peppered the prose. Not bad.
Finally, a few minutes ago, I finished reading another graphic novel, Get Jiro! written by Anthony Bourdain. Something of a chef's wet dream, crossed with an Akira Kurosawa movie in comic form. Not bad, and the artwork was something to see.
